The Lonely White Horse


The Lonely White Horse, my latest acrylic-on-canvas work is a portrayal of the peaceful Indian security personnel. He may be from any section of the Indian security apparatus, always smiling, judicious with power and protector of the sovereignty of the large sub-continent. But almost complete absence of political leadership has converted him into a sitting duck. The enemy of the country like the blood thirsty red horse is engulfing him from all the sides – north, west, east, south - and even within the country. Salute to the bravery and spirit of such a white horse. But will he find a good leader who is as concerned about the country’s security and autonomy as him?
(Disclaimer: I have learnt my horse patterns from MF Hussain's horse paintings.)

i so not have an eye for art or poem...i think for poem it's the intelligence......but these are too complicated for me...............

same way if i hadn't read about the painting that you wrote then i would have never guessed wat the painting was depicting

then at the end....it is good or better than good, seriously i'm not the person whose advice you'll take when it comes to art......
